"When [Paul] Ryan appeared on Tuesday's "Today," he was probably hoping for a friendlier welcome than the one Matt Lauer gave him. Lauer was unusually relentless with Ryan, asking him just one light-hearted question over the course of the five-minute interview.

"There are some people who are claiming that you played a little fast and loose with the truth on certain key elements," he said by way of an opening. "I'm not just talking about Democratic analysts. I'm talking about some independent fact-checkers. Would you concede that while many of the things you said were effective, some were not completely accurate?"

Ryan was, not surprisingly, unwilling to concede this, and went on to defend the now-infamous story he told about a GM plant that closed in his hometown of Janesville, saying that he never meant to accuse President Obama of being responsible for its closure...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

this guy will never be president, trust me no lies americans will remember his antics now and forever.
Paul Ryan should be indicted on treason charges. He has done more to damage the U.S. than al-Qaeda ever could do. Hard to imagine that a stupid and ignorant little man like this could hurt our country so badly, but this Gump-like imbecile has done it through his treasonous diversion of our common resources to his rich masters, who pay him so handsomely with bribes and graft while he shits-out "budgets" that maim us. He is a cancerous lesion who is subverting America from the inside.
People, all people even republicans the bullshit platform that republican canidates stand for which basically is anything to make the extremely rich richer...
Notice how nbc tries to distract the viewer from paul ryan's point by playing loud convention footage right when he clarifies his point. I had to watch it again to even understand what he was saying. The mainstream media (abc, nbc, cbs) was and is clearly in the tank for obama.

imagine! Romney Bombs Iran in support of Israel. Ryan can convincingly state 'we didn't do it-'they' did it! It might be a good thing to have a convincing lier in high office! Republicans are good at that sort of thing - remember, Iraq and the dirty bombs?
